What Do You Get When You Take The "T" Out Of HOT HOT HOT?

Becky Christmas pictures 002


You have HO HO HO!!! I know, I know….tis ONLY July, but it is Christmas in July at 20 Northora in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Despite the 100 degree PLUS temps, Judy is busy sewing up a storm at her home and creating some adorable Christmas adornments. Who would like to replace some HOT weather for a flurry of cool white snowflakes?


I have shared Judy’s work before on my blog and, seriously, her sewing skills are fantastic! I was recently blessed with a sweet package, which included the July 4th pillow that she embroidered. LOVE it!

P1010004z Judy will be listing a new item each day on her etsy shop: 20Northora. She is making up runners, pillows, pillowcases, stockings, tree skirts (look at that burlap one in the first photo!), banners, tree toppers, gingerbread men garlands and lamp shades. Stop on over to see what she has up her Mrs. Claus sleeves!

Have a safe and relaxing 4th!

OMG! The last few days, I have been browsing her shop looking at pillows and table runners. It's now an added bonus to know that you know her and her work personally, and you can share that with us. The pillow she sent you is just precious!!! Have a Happy and Safe Fourth, my friend.

Hugs and Blessings,

Winter is still too fresh in my mind to trade it in for the thought of snow, but Judy's work is gorgeous and fun. I'll be checking out her daily Christmas offering just for the smiles:>)
Happy 4th!

Hi Becky,
I adore the pillow! its absolutely lovely and so kind of Judy. She really is talented and creative.
It was just to crazy hot for me this weekend...Last night around 10pm I went out for a swim and to watch the fireworks from our back yard. Since I couldn't sleep from all the fire cracker noise...I don't think my neighbors wake as early as we do..2:45 am LOL, Lots of celebrating up until midnight.
Stay cool today, big hugs, Elizabeth

I'm wondering where she gets the patterns for those beautiful embrodered items. They are lovely and I love to do that kind of work.
